About Amanda…

I am a Connecticut girl who studied theatre in Chicago, moved to Los Angeles and with a bit of elbow grease, grew to love it here. I currently live in Silverlake with my (very funny) husband and two (obscenely adorable) cats.

I moved here to pursue a career in screenwriting, but soon stumbled into music supervision and haven’t turned back.  I’ve worked at a large film/television studio, an unscripted television production company on the rise, and now am a music supervisor with Format Entertainment, working alongside and learning from some of the best in the business.

In addition to music supervision, I’ve also helped produce a few events; I look for any excuse to both promote emerging artists that I believe in, and bring people together for a fun time…

And occasionally people ask (allow, really) me to talk, or say nice things about my blog.

Basically, whether it’s blogging or music supervising, there are so many gray areas, and no “right” way of doing things that results in guaranteed success.  I’ll happily take any opportunity to share my personal experiences, and absorb as much as possible.

So what is “Tadpole Audio”?

Well, the short version is that it’s my silly attempt to be quirky and hip and still be clear that we’re talking about music here.  Audio.  Sound.  Music.

I started this blog in February 2010 as a place to house lists of songs around a theme (rain, Scottish artists, morning, breaking up, etc.) that I was posting on Twitter.  Soon enough I started wanting people to read what I wrote, and the rest is history.

Think of this blog as a musical journal, with a focus on music supervision and a goal of sharing great music in new ways.  Songs as they relates to an experience, a memory, a sensation, a journey, a great meal.  Artists as they relate to other artists, media you have heard (or should hear) them in.  I hope to explore all the ways people use music to tell their own tales.  From brilliant songwriters to up and coming artists, experienced music supervisors, music bloggers, DJs, and everything in between, everyone connects to music differently – different genres, mediums, purposes, emotions.

Welcome to my experiment.  Speak up.

Cheers,
Amanda
